Bathroom Sign People

Not sure what else to call this cute little couple.  Bathroom sign people seems fitting.  

My craft area is pretty much finished.  Just need to clean up the stragglers and I will take pictures.  Since I finally have a long desk to craft on I was excited to make something and see how roomy my desk really is.'s PERFECT!  Anyway, on to what you came here for....the card.

I just realized that it looks like they got run over.....hahaha.

New Craft Area

It is time for me to give up my craft room.  I have been dreading this day for over a year now.  I knew this was coming but I held out as long as possible.  My little monster or I should say zombie, is ready for a crib and her own room. 

Oh why is she a zombie?  Well if you saw how she acts when she is tired and hungry you'd understand.  Not only does she sound like one during her tired hunger moments but she goes on the attack and munches on us and our clothes if she doesn't get food ASAP.  It's really cute.

So it's goodbye to my craft *room* and hello to a craft *area*.  You would think I'd be a little sad about it.  I'm not.  My craft room was the catch-all room and was a mess!  I couldn't get further than my craft table in that disatser of a room.  My work space and craft storage was laughable.  In other words, I couldn't function.  So nope, not sad.  Excited actually.  How in the heck can I be excited when I am downgrading space?

This is why:


Can you tell what that is?

It's the start of my brand spanking new craft table and shelves! 
My awesome husband is building me some awesomeness.
My husband had a game room.  Goodbye to game room.  Sort of.  This game room will be a combined game room and craft room now.  The pictures above are just the start.  I also went and purchased two cubby shelves from Lowes to hold more of my craft stuff.  Unfortunately I didn't get the Expedit shelves from Ikea (been dreaming about those for a few years now) but I am hoping what I ended up getting works just as well. 

I'm hoping that we get this all put together this weekend so I can *move* in and hopefully get my mojo back.

Hello Kitty Bookmark

Hello all!  I am a guest designer over at September Ninth today.  Yea yea....I actually made something.  I'm not even going to say "I'm back" because I don't know about that yet.  Anyway, for today's project I used a cut file that Ruthie created from a coloring book page. 

Hello Kitty is quite the popular cat these days.  Actually, now that I think about it that cute white cat was popular back when I was a teen...all those years ago.  Now my pre-teen daughter and her friends swoon over it just like I did in the 90s.  I just hinted at my age there.  Did you catch that? 

Lately my daughter has been reading a lot.  She has nothing else to do while she sits and mourns the loss of her electronic use privileges.  Oh these pre-teen years!!  Since she is reading a ton and probably lost the other bookmarks I made her I decided to use this awesome Hello Kitty file to make her a new bookmark.  Here it is....

It was super easy to make.  I welded the Hello Kitty main body to a rectangle in MTC and sized all the parts at the same time to keep the measurements equal.  The bookmark is about 6" tall and 1.75" wide.

See the little kitty peeking out at you?

I have it on good word that Ruthie will be offering the Hello Kitty file for free.  Head on over to her blog grab it!
